Sarah Huckabee Sanders does not suffer fools. Although she has to put up with them on a daily basis. Because her job is to deal with the foaming at the mouth White House press corps.
And she beats them back every day with elegance and class. Like today.
When April Ryan would not take no for an answer and kept pestering and pestering Sarah Sanders with the same line of questions she tried yesterday.
About slavery and by inference she was calling Trump a racist. Or wanted to and was just waiting for the chance.
According to the Gateway Pundit, Ryan started asking Sara Sanders about “compromise as it related to slavery and the civil war” to go after Kelly and Trump for past comments.
An annoyed Sarah shot back that she will not relitigate the Civil War.
That wasn’t enough for Ryan who then rudely interjected,
“Does this administration believe that slavery is wrong?” asked Ryan. Which is what she wanted to ask the whole time.
Sanders had had enough and crushed the hapless Ryan with, “I think it is disgusting and absurd to suggest that anyone inside of this building would support slavery.”
This line of questioning that Ryan has been using to portray Trump and his administration as racists it is getting old.
Because to say we shouldn’t tear down Washington’s monument because he lived during a time when slavery was accepted is not the same as saying slavery is ok.
To say the Civil War happened for a variety of reasons, including slavery, is not the same as saying slavery is ok.

What it says is we move through history together, as one country, we learn from our mistakes as move forward. Why can’t April Ryan?
